Nick's Crispy Tacos

1500 Broadway (at Polk), 409-8226

If you've never ordered a taco from Nick's, you're probably going to make a mistake, so listen up: After you say, "Carnitas taco, please" (the place sells other meat, but it's your money), follow it up with, "Nick's way." It takes people months to get this routine down, satisfied as they are with a simple taco. But for an extra 75 cents, Nick's tucks cheese, guacamole, and a hard shell into your soft taco. Yes, that makes two shells, like Taco Bell, but trust us -- this is no gimmick. The soft tortilla's earthy flavor benefits from the crunch, and after the hard tortilla cracks (as it always does), the soft tortilla seals the fault lines. Nick's is located within Harry Denton's Rouge nightclub, which means you can eat your taco in an oversized red booth under dozens of chandeliers and a disco ball. Oh, and there are piñatas of SpongeBob and Scooby-Doo, because it's a Mexican restaurant.
